Yuletide Poems and Parodies

It’s that time of year again, heathens. That time where we try desperately to create new, Christian-free lyrics to our favorite tunes and carols. Some of us are better at it than others, and I don’t put myself out there as anything more than passing fair. I wanted to write a few Yule lyric version to less common carols, since those were always my own favorite carols. Enjoy!

HEATHENS ALL REJOICE AND SING

TUNE:Christ was born on Christmas Day

Heathens all rejoice and sing

To the feast we all shall bring

Goodly food and drink to share

To bring delight to friend and wight we fare

Heathens all rejoice and sing

To the feast we all shall bring

Many a jug of mead and wine

We’ll drink them down and then will sound so fine

Heathens all rejoice and sing

To the feast we all shall bring

Awful jokes and tales to tell

A loud refrain to entertain them well

Heathens all rejoice and sing

To the feast we all shall bring

Decorations for the tree

And then with you a blessed Yule will be

SING WE NOW OF YULETIDE

TUNE: Sing we now of Christmas

Sing we now of Yuletide, sing of ancient ways

That all through the Northland, were in ancient days

Sing of the light within the longest night

Sing we now of Yuletide, sing of ancient days

Sing of worthy words heard over bowl and horn

Celebrate with song the Solstice sun is born

Sing of the light within the longest night

Sing we now of Yuletide, sing of ancient days

Honor to the spirits, Gods and Ancestors

May these Yuletide blessings be forever yours

Sing of the light within the longest night

Sing we now of Yuletide, sing of ancient days.
